GOD'S GREAT ADVENTURE

Game Design & Coding for Ages 12-16

Abiding Grace’s Summer Code Camp will introduce your student to programming basics using the Python programming language and concepts like loops, conditionals and functions, along with concepts like sprite rendering, collision detection and level design.

Students will apply what they’re learning by building a top-down adventure game on a Raspberry Pi computer while learning foundational Bible lessons!
